Focus on The Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Design programme of Aalborg University combines sustainable product design with tools from innovation theory and user-oriented design. Visualisation and experimentation are important strategies to develop new innovative solutions, which can overcome system dependencies and achieve sustainable system transformation in various societal sectors.
You engage in challenging design-oriented problem solving in collaboration with NGO´s, companies, public institutions and professional groups. Perhaps you design and develop future relief tents, robot vacuum cleaners or bike airbags. You can also work with rehabilitation of older, energy-efficient mobility or waste systems in cities.
The programme includes interdisciplinary components to satisfy the need for combining methods from social science and technology studies with technical subjects and design practices. You will gain the ability to understand, stage and carry out innovative processes leading to design and the implementation of sustainable products, services and socio-material system solutions through involvement of relevant actors.
